Formal elegance and practical purposes: hardwood flooring

Maybe you are looking to add a touch of elegance to your formal living room or dining area. Or, perhaps you like the idea of a classic floor that never goes out of style. Maybe you are looking for something durable that you will never have to replace, but can simply be sanded and refinished if it gets damaged or overly worn. Whatever your interest in hardwood flooring, Mendel Carpet and Flooring has a floor that will meet your needs.

Solid wood or engineered hardwood flooring

Solid wood floors are exactly what their name implies. The materials are milled down, a tongue-and-groove is routed into them, they are finished, and then installed into your home, most commonly, by being nailed directly to your subfloor. Many of these floors are 3/4” thick and if there is a need, can be sanded and refinished 2-3 times, making it very likely the last floor you will ever buy for your home.

Engineered hardwood flooring is designed specifically for areas where there is the potential for moisture or high humidity. They are thinner layers of hardwood that are mounted on a plywood backing. These provide the look, feel, and strength of a hardwood floor but are more resistant to water. They also come in many of the same styles and materials as our solid hardwoods.

Walnut, oak, maple, and hickory

Oak is pretty much a standard when it comes to hardwood flooring. The wood is sturdy, dense, and can take a whole range of stains and finishes. Maple is another great option and is a wood that is highly resilient to shock and impact (which is why many baseball players have switched over to maple baseball bats). If you are looking for something a little different, maybe consider our hickory or walnut flooring. Hickory is a very hard and dense wood with a dramatic pattern to the grain and walnut has some of the most dramatic chocolate hues of any American hardwood that will add distinction to your room.
